In presenting this, our first Catalogue, it is with the belief that those who 
favor us with their orders will be so pleased with our prompt, liberal way of doing 
business that a continuation of their favors will be assured. 

OUR STOCK is true to name and entirely free from insect pests. All the 
varieties offered have been grown and selected with a special view to their 
adaptation to the soil and climate of California. 

BULBS. -These have been selected with the greatest care. Our Holland 
Bulbs have been imported directly by us from the most reliable growers. They 
are this year unusually large and fine. 

FLOWER SEEDS ! — We have now in stock the choicest collection of 
flower seeds ever offered on the Pacific Coast. Some of them have been 
grown in our own bright clime, while others have been imported from reliable 
rjch and German growers. 

PLANTS. — These have been grown at our extensive Blanding Avenue 
nurseries in Alameda, where constant watchfulness is exercised to prevent the 
propagation of weak or imperfect stock. 

MISTAKES. — It is our constant aim to fill orders correctly in every 
instance, but should mistakes occur, it is only necessary to give prompt notice of 
the fact and circumstances, and correction will be made without delay. 

PACKING. — Our packing is 'done by those experienced in the art, and it is 
rare indeed that there is a complaint of even the most delicate plant suffering by 

SHIPPING. — For obvious reasons, plants especially should be ordered sent 
by express, wherever at all practicable. 

MAILING. — Since the recent reduction of postage on plants, seeds and 
bulbs to 8 cts. a pound, this branch of our business has largely increased. It is 
often a great convenience to persons distant from express offices, or to those only 
needing a few seeds or plants to be able to secure them safely in this way. 

THE NAME and ADDRESS. — In ordering be extremely careful to write 
your full name and address very plainly. Attention to this clause will obviate 
much confusion and delay. 

MONEY SHOULD BE SENT either in the form of a Money Order, Bank 
Draft, Express Order or Registered Letter.

Then is perhaps do country in the world where Holland Bulbs give re satisfactory results than 

in California, Our peculiar soil and climatic conditions secure the greatest sise, brilliance and abund- 
ance ol The rapidly increasing demand for this class of bulbs has induced us to secure a much 
illection than has ever before been offered on this * toast. 

We ofler only first bize, well ripened bulbs, as these are much more satisfactory both to us and to 
purchasers than those of uncertain siae and maturity, though the latter may he sold a few cents cheaper. 

To obtain the best results, Holland Bulbs should be ordered and planted as early in the season aa 



These old favorites have been much improved of late years. Their symetrical spikes of exquisitely 
fragrant blossoms with clear, rich colors are ever welcome heralds of the joyous spring time. 

Plant as early as possible in the Fall in borders or groups. If planted in pots, they should be 
stored away in the dark until plenty of roots have been made, then gradually brought into the light and 
air. They may also he flowered in glasses. Place the bulb so that its base just touches the water, and 
set it away in the dark. As the bottle fills with roots gradually remove it into the light. The water 
should be changed every few days without removing the bulb from the glass.

These stately beauties have not yet received 
in California the attention they merit. In no 
country — not even in France — do they produce 
so luxuriantly their superb blossoms. They are 
of easy culture generally, but a few points 
should be observed. Never plant them in soil 
which contains fresh manure; and to prevent 
decay, put them where the soil is moist in the 
Fall or early Spring. 

Auratnm (Golden Banded Japan Lily) — This 
is beyond doubt one of the grandest members of 
the Lily family. Each flower is composed of 
six petals pure white, thickly studded with 
brilliant crimson spots. Through the center of

fully fragrant. When fully expanded, the 
flowers sometimes measure nearly a foot across,

This is a most interesting class of bulbs, desirable forgrow- 
ing either in the flower garden or in pots, producing an

"Plant Roses" is the English gardener's motto, but is none the less applicable to California, which, 
has now come to be regarded as the Rose State of the Union. Even the sensuous old Romans, in all 
their luxury, never dre.iiued of such a profusion of fragrant blossoms as now surrounds and embowers 
the average California home. 

Our stock is free free from insects and disease, and the varieties offered have been selected and de- 
scribed from personal knowledge, and are first class in every particular. 

Plant in the Fall or from February to May. Cut the bush back to sound eyes turning outward. 
Remove all weakly wood. Spread the roots out in planting, and if any are broken, trim the ends smooth, 
Firm the earth around the plant well, and water copiously, being careful to surface with dry, pulverized 
earth. Give no fertilizer till the first growth has hardened, and only water when the plant shows signs 
of needing it. 

Most of the new roses we offer have been thoroughly tested in California, and are certainly welcome ad- 
ditions to our gardens. A few others have been selected because they give excellent promise of becom- 
, ing valuable for culture here.

(Ipomosa Grandijlora.) 

Tliis is the true ''Moon Flower," which for several years lias been the wonder and admiration of the 
country. Sometimes on dull foggy days it will expand its large snowy flowers, but usually about sun- 
down the long pointed buds unfold with a snapping sound. The flowers have a slight jasmine fragrance, 
and at times are so abundantly produced as to almost conceal the vines. The plant is such a rapid grow- 
er that only a few months are required lo cover a wall or the entire side of a house. The effect by moon 
light is wonderfully chaste. We can fully recommend the "Moon Flower " to our customers, feeling as- 
sured that they will be greatly pleased with their purchase.

The seeds we offer are all perfectly fresh, and every possible precaution has been taken to have them 
exactly true to name. They have been procured from the most reliable growers, and only those varie- 
ties are offered which we are sure will prove in every way satisfactory to our patrons. Our packages 
contain many more seeds than the average packages offered at the same prices. 

It is best to plant most seeds in shallow boxes or frames where they can be protected to some extent. 
The soil should be first pulverized, finely and gently packed, b'ow the seeds thinly in rows or broadcast 
Then sift over them a little more soil, and pack quite firmly. Cover lightly with a coating of pulver- 
ized moss or cocoanut dust. Transplant into roomier quarters as soon as second leaves have been made.

In California, there are a great many beautiful wild flowers which are highly prized in other parts of 
the United States and in Europe. The beauty of our own gardens would be greatly enhanced if we paid 
more attention to this class of flowers. We have at some pains succeeded in making a collection of 
twenty-five varieties, which we are sure will afford great satisfaction to purchasers. 

Each variety per package 15c 

All the 25 varieties $2 50 

We have also beautiful dried wild flowers arranged on cards for Holiday presents from 10c to 51.00. 



Pansies are universal favorites, and always will be. Perhaps their sometimes fancied look of intelli- 
gence has something to do with the esteem in which they are held by older people as well as by chil- 
dren. They reach here their greatest perfection, and the accompanying cut is no exaggeration of what 
may be seen in many California flower gardens. They have been greatly improved of late years, and by 
a little care can be kept in bloom nearly all the year. 

The Pansies love a cool, moist situation. They do best when partially shielded from the noonday sun j 
when exposed to its full force they grow and bloom, but the blossoms are smaller. 
Pansy Premier Mixed. A beautiful French strain; flowers large, and the colors and markings are 

exceedingly beautiful 50c

A few months ago we sent a collector to Japan with orders to search 
the land and purchase, regardless of expense, the cream of all the new 
Japanese varieties. His efforts were crowned with success. He brought 
back about 200 superb varieties, out of which collection we now offer 100, 
most of which can not be duplicated even in Japan, as we took care to buy- 
up the whole stock when possible. This is without doubt the best 100 
varieties ever offered in the United States. While they are not named, 
never before having been offered for sale, they have been carefully num- 
bered and described while blooming in our grounds.
